Description

Explore Capitol Hill inside and out with the only guided tour that visits the US Capitol, Library of Congress, US Supreme Court, and the Folger Shakespeare Library and Theater. Join an expert guide in a small group of 15 or less and learn about the history and day to day operations within the buildings that occupy the area known as Capitol Hill.

Begin with the beauty of the Library of Congress Thomas Jefferson Building, part of the largest library in the world. Admire the extensive artwork, view some of Thomas Jefferson's original books he sold to the Capitol in 1815, see a rare copy of the Gutenberg Bible, and even visit the main reading room from the observation deck.

Continue to the Supreme Court where you will learn the history of how it became the court it is today, get a detailed breakdown on how cases make their way through the system, review current opinions, and view the actual courtroom.

Then visit the largest collector of William Shakespeare First Folios with the Folger Shakespeare Library and Theater, where you will see an active Elizabethan theater.

Conclude your tour with a reserved docent lead tour of the US Capitol Rotunda, Crypt, and Old House Chambers.
